SUPPORTING GROUNDBREAKING INNOVATIONS IN HOSPITAL AT HOME

As its name suggests, Hospital at Home programs make acute, hospital-level care available to adults and particularly older adults where they live, rather than in a traditional hospital setting. Interest in hospital at home and its patient-centered and cost-effective approach to improving outcomes, particularly for vulnerable patients, has exploded recently. The Hospital at Home Users Group was formed to build on this excitement.

A dynamic collaborative of Hospital at Home programs around the United States and Canada, the Users Group is sharing resources and best practices, working together to expand the reach of our programs, and developing the program and policy standards to inform regulatory and reimbursement policies necessary to spread this hopeful model broadly throughout North America.

New HaH Tools and Technical Assistance Center

Looking for insight and resources to help guide your hospital at home program?

The HaH Users Group, in partnership with the Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC), has gathered an array of practical help into a one-stop Hospital at Home Technical Assistance Center. Expanding every day and still in a beta version, this site already includes case studies and implementation tools, links to resources on special topics, as well as our webinar series, and information on the CMS Acute Hospital Care at Home waiver and program.

Office Hours are now available in the Technical Assistance Center, where you can meet in small groups with HaH Users Group leaders and get useful insights into the challenges that you are facing as you start or grow a hospital at home program.

Take a look at the HaH Users Group Technical Assistance Center, and check back regularly to take advantage of this useful resource.
